I made a custom workflow for Daily Bible Study.  In it I have a Question/Answer box.  As I type in the box the cursor will jump to the Bible Reference box.  I have noted the following about this behavior.

  1. It seems to happen fairly quickly, usually the first sentence.
  2. There are no characters including periods or spaces that I can determine that cause it.
  3. I am sure I am not hitting Ctrl or Alt as I type
  4. There always seem to be a few characters lost from where I was in a sentence, and what starts filling the Bible Reference Box
  5. The last time I had typed two words and was sitting there thinking about what I wanted to write for probably close to 20 or 30 seconds when the cursor suddenly jumped to the Bible Reference box.  I am 99.9 percent positive that I did not type any character when this happened.  It was like a timer had gone off in the programming and the procedure called for the focus to go to the Bible Reference box.

Very bizarre behavior and causes me to have to pay attention to when it happens so I can get back to Q/A box and back up and retype the few characters that were lost.

Anyone else experiencing this?

One other thing I noticed was that it only happens once.  After it happens I can type a lot in the Q/A box and it doesn't happen again.

I have also deleted the Question/Answer box and added another instance.  It behaves the same.

Could L8 be doing something in the background as it creates the note and when it is done it puts the focus in the Reference box instead of the Answer box?

I could only reproduce it once and then I couldn't again. Would you please make sure that logging is enabled on your machice (see the link in my post signature). If this occures again please upload your logs from that session. This will help if we can't nail down precisely what is needed to reproduce it.

Here is the log file from the first workflow.  It happened as usual.  Thanks, Bob

Note: I typed a few of the character d when it changed focus just to make sure you could see where the focus was.  My "d" key did not stick.
